If ESPN says it, then it has to be true. Let's just skip game 1 and move on to game 2...

Meh - I doubt it.

But if we loose to NCState we are in for a LOOOOONG Season. They do not have a very good team.

Hope I didn't waste $1,500 on the tickets for that game. I invited my daughter and her husband who went to NCSU as well as a couple other friends. ESPN ruins it before we play 1 down. Oh well the partying will be good.

Um...they arent bad either. They went 7-6. They beat Notre Dame (not as big a deal lately)....and as we know they BEAT Clemson for 59:58 but had that ONE play that would've kept the Tigers out of the playoffs, out of the ACC champ game. One play. One FG. And they beat ACC Division Champ UNC.

So they arent great. But arent bad either.

Its gonna be a very close game.

Idk about them not being very good. They return 8 offensive starters and 9 defensive starters off a team that almost beat Clemson in DV and made quick work of a Vandy team we struggled with. Can we beat them with a much improved offense and (we hope) defense? Sure, but let's not downplay them because they were 7-6 like we weren't 6-7 last year.

Default Re: Picked to lose 1st game of the year

I'm hoping it's the other way around.

I think both matchups will be very close. Gamecocks and NC State seem to matchup well. Jaylen Samuels (TE) is a matchup nightmare b/c he's as athletic as they come. They run that speed sweep play with him near the goal line, the one we run with Deebo. So I guess it will be a heck of a test for Skai Moore in his first game back.

Auburn's gonna be a tougher opener for Clemson than most people think if Jarrett Stidham can take over at QB. Auburn wins that game last year if they have their QB and RB situation figured out. They have their RB figured out this time around(Pettway). Just need Stidham to step up, which it sounds like he impressed at the Spring Game.

Default Re: Picked to lose 1st game of the year

on paper, nc state should win this game. like a few have mentioned, they have beaten some good teams and really should have beaten clemson if the guy makes a chipshot.

of course that doesnt mean we cant win. our offense will give them all they can handle. our defense is the problem.

It's a fairly even matchup; could make a reasonable case for calling it either way at this point.

They actually could be a 8 or 9 win team this year...lots of talent returning on a team that won a bowl game

If we lose to NC Stayut we are in for a long year. They are not terrible but we should be able to match their talent level. They have nowhere near the skill players on offense and they dont have Bentz. Having Bentz will be the difference in a lot of games this year. He will be the best QB on the field in every game we play this year, so I feel that puts 7 to 10 points on the board for us in every game. Gamecocks by 12..

Doesn't matter how good of a qb you have if you can't keep him upright. Gotta have better line play on both sides of the ball to be successful. Giving up the most sacks in the country almost and barely having any sacks last year is a lot of your problem
